De-ubiquitination of ELK-1 by USP17 potentiates mitogenic gene expression and cell proliferation (2019)
Journal Article
Ducker, C., Chow, L., Saxton, J., Handwerger, J., McGregor, A., Strahl, T., …Shaw, P. E. (2019). De-ubiquitination of ELK-1 by USP17 potentiates mitogenic gene expression and cell proliferation. Nucleic Acids Research, doi:10.1093/nar/gkz166

ELK-1 is a transcription factor involved in ERK-induced cellular proliferation. Here we show that its transcriptional activity is modulated by ubiquitination at lysine 35 (K35). The level of ubiquitinated ELK-1 rises in mitogen-deprived cells and fal... Read More

MRS and DTI evidence of progressive posterior cingulate cortex and corpus callosum injury in the hyper-acute phase after Traumatic Brain Injury (2019)
Journal Article
Lawrence, T. P., Steel, A., Ezra, M., Speirs, M., Pretorius, P. M., Douaud, G., …Voets, N. L. (2019). MRS and DTI evidence of progressive posterior cingulate cortex and corpus callosum injury in the hyper-acute phase after Traumatic Brain Injury. Brain Injury, doi:10.1080/02699052.2019.1584332

The posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) and corpus callosum (CC) are susceptible to trauma, but injury often evades detection. PCC Metabolic disruption may predict CC white matter tract injury and the secondary cascade responsible for progression. While... Read More

Synthesising process controllers from formal models of transformable assembly systems (2019)

Ehrhart polynomial roots of reflexive polytopes (2019)
Journal Article
KASPRZYK, A., Hegedus, G., & Higashitani, A. (2019). Ehrhart polynomial roots of reflexive polytopes. Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 26(1),

Recent work has focused on the roots z∈C of the Ehrhart polynomial of a lattice polytope P. The case when Rz=−1/2 is of particular interest: these polytopes satisfy Golyshev's "canonical line hypothesis". We characterise such polytopes when dim(P)≤7.... Read More
